We are thrilled to add another nursery-propagated seed-grown trillium to our offerings...a Missouri form of Trillium recurvatum. This delightful native ranges from the Great Lakes south to Texas. The 18" tall stems are topped with three olive-green leaves, nicely mottled with liver-colored flecking. Between the leaves sits the blunt red flower, looking indeed like a bloody nose (late April in NC). This is an easy-to-grow species in the garden that offsets well. We have seen this in the wild growing in bogs with arisaema and in drier areas under large oaks. Trillium recurvatum does seem to prefer slightly more moist soils than most other trillium species.
